When the doves disappeared by Sofi Oksanen( Book )

73 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1941: In Communist-ruled, war-ravaged Estonia, two men have deserted the Red Army--Roland, a fiercely principled freedom fighter, and his slippery cousin Edgar. When the Germans arrive, Roland goes into hiding; Edgar abandons his unhappy wife, Juudit, and takes on a new identity as a loyal supporter of the Nazi regime ... 1963: Estonia is again under Communist control, independence even further out of reach behind the Iron Curtain. Edgar is now a Soviet apparatchik, desperate to hide the secrets of his past life and stay close to those in power. But his fate remains entangled with Roland's, and with Juudit, who may hold the key to uncovering the truth ... In a masterfully told story that moves between the tumult of these two brutally repressive eras--a story of surveillance, deception, passion, and betrayal--Sofi Oksanen brings to life both the frailty, and the resilience, of humanity under the shadow of tyranny"
Norma by Sofi Oksanen( Book )

24 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood--and the moods of those around her--moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother's funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life. Setting out to reconstruct Anita's final months--sifting through puzzling cell phone records, bank statements, video files--Norma begins to realize that her mother knew more about her hair's powers than she let on: a sinister truth beyond Norma's imagining. As Sofi Oksanen leads us ever more deeply into Norma's world, weaving together past and present, she gives us a dark family drama that is a searing portrait of both the exploitation of women's bodies and the extremes to which people will go for the sake of beauty"--
